    Very accurate historically correct home with lots of intricacy and lacy details (you need someone else).Muscular details using large timbers and rocks (that's us).Small, gentle details using very small beams and little posts (probably not us).All-glass roofs (probably not us).Slate roofs or slate-look roofs (us).Cedar roof shingles (we do that, too).Economy roof shingles (we actually do this and have a good choice, believe it or not).


    I like rough finishes.I like in-between satin-like finishes I can easily clean.I like very glossy, slick and shiny surfaces.I don't care; whatever works.

    I agree that by submitting this form, I will be contacted by Rand.

    The above form allows you, as a prospective client, to share with us, your ideas and preferences for your future residential design project. We have tried to make this easy and fun to do. After filling out your contact information, typically all you need to do is click on the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, car parking spaces that you want, the square footage of your proposed house, what kind of views you like (and which your proposed land has), and other features.

    The idea is that when we contact you, usually by phone or e-mail, that we will have a better concept of what you want for your proposed house. You may not know the answer to some of the items. Simply ignore those; that is just fine with us. We’ll get around to those items later, as we begin to become involved with your project.

    Your Latitude and Longitude are very important, especially if you do not have a 911 emergency services address for your property. It is a big old world out there and we really need to know where your land is so that we can “fly” around it on our software, that allows us to see the entire World in 3D. If you have ever traveled to your land and have a GPS navigation system in your vehicle, find the menu item that reads: WHERE AM I? Push it. Write down the numbers you see there on the screen. Those are the latitude and longitude. Please make sure to note whether the digits are all in degrees and decimals of degrees (the easiest way to do this), or if the reading is in degrees, minutes and seconds. This will help us find your land and examine its views, which you may not be able to clearly see, due to trees and other vegetation blocking such views. We have discovered wonderful views for clients who were not aware of them due to our examination of their sites on our computers using this software. So, by providing us this sort of information, it allows us to better assist you in determining improved characteristics of your proposed house design.

    Please let us know if you need any help with this form or if you have any questions whatsoever:
